Comments Off on Elodie Elsenberger’s Land(e)scape Desk Swaps Screws and Glue For Cable

Design student  Elodie Elsenberger ‘s Land(e)scape Desk shuns screws and glue in favor of a single length of electrical cord to create a versatile work space. The desk is Elodie’s second-year thesis project at the ESAD art and design school in Reims, France, and it appears to have been inspired aesthetically by geographical forms. According to Elodie’s product description, “The electrical cord is woven through the wood, creating the different micro-spaces. The desk uses no screws or glue, only the cord.” Judging by the accompanying images, the cord is not just a design conceit either; one of the micro-spaces forms a functional desk lamp with a bulb hanging from the top of a little cage. + Elodie Elsenberger Via Design Milk  Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: “green furniture” , design for disassembly , desk design , elodie elsenberger , green design , green interiors , landescape desk , no screws no glue , sustainable design , sustainable furnishings , work space , workspace

Vladimir Putin Takes to the Skies in Bid to Lead Endangered Siberian Crane Migration

Comments Off on Vladimir Putin Takes to the Skies in Bid to Lead Endangered Siberian Crane Migration

As reported by the Guardian , Russian President Vladimir Putin made an unlikely attempt yesterday to lead endangered cranes born in captivity in the Arctic north along their migration path to nesting sites in Iran and India. Taking to the air in a motorized hang glider—purportedly purchased for the task by Putin himself—the often-embattled politician hoped to start the endangered birds on their route from Siberia. While it seems only one lone white Siberian Crane chick opted to follow the glider on its first flight, Putin’s efforts have brought attention to the plight of the critically endangered birds, of which there are believed to be fewer than 3,000 left in the wild.

Comments Off on Sierra Club Draws a Subway Map of America’s National Parks

The Sierra Club has created this fun map that depicts U.S. National Parks as if they were stops on a nationwide subway system. The awesome cartography depicts separate “regional” lines that host national parks, like Yellowstone and Yosemite, as well as less famous destinations such as the beautiful Congaree in South Carolina and the Petrified Forest in Arizona. If only there really were such a simple way to visit all these beautiful places by rail! + Sierra Club Via Treehugger.com Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: cartography , Congaree , maps , national parks , Nature , parks , Sierra Club , subway , subway map , wilderness , yellowstone , Yosemite

Comments Off on Benefits of Organic Food Go Beyond Vitamins and Minerals

It makes sense to this writer that organic food is a healthier option than convention produce, which is grown with  synthetic pesticides and fertilizers . Take away those harmful chemicals, and organic food ought to be better for you, right? I am not alone in this line thought, and as such, the organic food market is a $29 billion industry. However a new study is pouring cold water on this theory, suggesting that research into organic food has found “scant evidence of health benefits” — but is the new study missing the point?
